need a new all tube LOUD amp. suggestions?

Hello all,
Im in the process of needing an amp that will be loud and good for my band. I play on a MIM Strat and an Epi Lp. Pedals= big muff pi w/ tone wicker, dunlop compression, dunlop carbon delay, original crybaby, ernie ball volume pedal. Now my band plays alt rock (rchp,nirvana,PJ), classic (mostly zeppelinesque), modern alternative (foos), punk. In fact its a wide variety of genres. Mostly punk/alt rock tho. Now being a huge hendrix and frusciante fan, i am influenced most off them. I want an amp that is very warm and bassy on the cleans, fuzzy with my muff distorted, and can scream with my wah. Now dont flame me saying i should be original because I try to stray away from being a copier and do my own thing. But that is basically what the barebones of my tone is. Hendrix/fru. Now for the harder side, i need a grungy, modern rockish distortion like the foo fighters. What amp can I get that would suit me. Price range= 0-500. preferably a head. A combo would suffice if its going to achieve what I said. Thanks to all and happy playing!!

Are you saying that you already have a cab or does this 500 dollars/pounds/euro/sheckles/grams of yak fat have to cover a cab as well?

If you want an amp with two channels, go Marshall JCM2000 DSL401. You can get those used in that price range. It's a combo, so you won't need a cab if you don't already have one, but it'll still hook up to a cab like a head.

You gotta wait a little bit. I see them pop up around that price every now and then but it's not every day
